How to use cleaning tape on a TS3100 drive?

I am trying to figure out how to get our cleaning tape to start the cleaning process on our TS3100 drive. We have made the cleaning tape (named CLNU45) available. How do I navigate the menu on the tape drive to get it to start cleaning? Or, how do I start the cleaning from an AS400 interface?



RE: How to use cleaning tape on a TS3100 drive?

Once the cleaning tape is in the drive it runs through the cleaning cycle automatically. The firmware of the LTO drives, detects the cleaning cartridge and runs the cleaning cycle and auto ejects when done.

I think that you can clean the drive manually from WEB access or the Operator panel, it is moving the tape fron I/O station to drive and then in reverse move...
Also, if you want, I can send you a pdf of service manual...
Good luck!!
